On Friday, March 8, 2013, The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity will launch Her Dignity Network, a project of the Center’s global women’s health initiative, in Washington, D.C.
The event will feature the unveiling of HerDignity.net, the online presence of Her Dignity Network and an address by Jameela George, MBBS, executive director of the Centre for Bioethics, India. Dr. George will discuss the landscape of women’s health issues from the perspective of her work within the Indian context, and a panel of speakers will also unpack practical implications of women’s dignity in their work.
This project connects a global network of people and organizations who share two basic ideas: (1) that women’s dignity is ultimately about human dignity; and, (2) that female bodies and health are essential aspects of both her dignity and our common humanity. Using rigorous research, contextually sensitive analysis, and community education, Her Dignity Network promotes the equalization of treatment in healthcare across the lifespan, eradication of medical discrimination and exploitation, and education through communities.
Join the event via the livestream on March 8, 2013, from 8:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (CST) at cbhd.org/livestream.
The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity (CBHD) is a bioethics research center at Trinity International University that explores the nexus of biomedicine, biotechnology, and our common humanity. CBHD fosters a distinctly Christian conception of bioethics that is both academically rigorous and broadly accessible.
